1. Navigate The Best Preserved Sites of Ancient Rome

Come with us on a week long getaway as we dive deep into life in 79AD before the fateful eruption of Mount Vesuvius. No other site can compare in revealing the scale and proportions of a Roman town. We take special care to travel the best routes and avoid the crowds so you can be wowed by the buildings of Pompeii, including an amphitheatre, forum, bathhouses and other town fixtures.

We also go off the beaten track to marvel at sites such as the decadent villas of Stabiae, dedicated to the wealthiest of Roman society and see what luxury was like in ancient times.

2. Special Access

Andante Travels enjoys access to rarely visited sites. Take advantage and join us on exclusive trips to sights such as the cavernous Piscina Mirabilis at Misenum, normally closed to the public - but open to you! This gigantic cistern stored water for the Roman fleet and fed the towns of the Bay of Naples

3. A Glimpse Into History

The highly preserved scenery of Pompeii doesn’t just showcase the magnificent Roman architecture, but also the humanity of this once bustling town. The nature of Pompeii being frozen in time shows glimpses into daily life in 79AD, truly breathtaking to behold in person. From the graffiti on house walls, to fountains worn down by generations of people resting their hands to take a drink, you will have an incomparably clear picture of Ancient Roman life.

5. Visit Herculaneum And Beyond

Our tour doesn’t just end at Pompeii, we continue our visit with other sites of interest that perfectly complement the historical site.

We make a stop at the National Archaeological Museum at Naples and marvel at the exceptional collection of artefacts brought from the early days of the excavation at Pompeii and its surrounding areas.

Another of the sites included in our tour is Herculaneum, a town buried deeper than Pompeii within volcanic ash. Wander the streets where you can view almost complete Roman houses on either side, preserved up to their rooftops in some cases.

Mt. Vesuvius is also on your agenda as we ascend the great volcanic crater. Enjoy spectacular views of Naples and all of the sites covered over the entirety of the tour. Truly a incomparable experience you will never forget!

My Approach:

I enjoyed putting together this blog post, and found the tour information page to be highly useful to draw information from. I planned the structure of ‘5 Reasons To…’ as I believe that this is an engaging, snappy and commonly-used structure for blogs.  

Additionally, I tried to make sure that I emphasised Andante Travel’s USP - Expert-Led Archaeological Tours, and tried to ensure that all the points came back to this core messaging. 

I kept to a planned word range of about 300 ~ 600 words as I believe that this is common practice. Not too short that there isn’t enough information, and not too long to overwhelm the target audience. 

All of these are SEO-friendly practices, but I am personally a believer of writing and formatting for a human audience first, and then SEO optimising afterwards. In a work situation, I would do some keyword research and ensure that the Title, Meta Description, Content and Tags would include my chosen words. In my brief perusal of some SEO tools, I included the brand keywords (andante travels), USPs (expert-led archaeological travels) as well as industry level keywords (archaeological tour, historical tour, etc) 

Finally, I formatted an online version of the blog post on my own site, so it could be viewed in context with images and in a mobile-friendly format.
I hope I’ve matched your expectations well, but am looking forward to develop my content-writing skills further according to the Specialist Journeys house style!
